Dear Mr. Zonfrillo,
I am a highly trained paralegal with a background in divorce settlements, and I am excited by the opportunity to work for Zonfrillo & Smith Law Firm. I have a history of consistent, accurate legal support, and I know I could step in and make an immediate impact on your company. My objective as a paralegal is to provide excellent support for firm lawyers, and my expertise aligns with the qualifications needed for your open position.
A desire to provide effective legal support is paramount to me and is shown in my career through a strong eight-year history as a certified paralegal. Whilst my on-the-job experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set, including first-rate resourcefulness and organisational abilities, I excel in the following areas:
Performing thorough and efficient legal research.
Managing trial, judicial, and master calendars.
Drafting legal correspondence, managing client data, and handling court mailings.
Preparing clients for appointments, depositions, and court appearances.
In the course of my work, I have regularly organised case exhibits and acted as a liaison between all parties of active cases. Additionally, I am a decisive person and have trained numerous incoming staff on office procedures and case-related tasks. I am extremely enthusiastic about Zonfrillo & Smith’s focus on civil law and would love the opportunity to contribute to your success in this area. My CV details my additional work experience.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to learning more about this position. Please let me know if you would like any additional information to be considered for an interview.
